TUESDAY, APRIL 15, 2014
As expected all fields are closed today with the exception of the artificial turf. Not sure what tomorrow will bring with regards to field conditions but I know the parks crew will do what they can to help get you back on the fields. I will be sending an instant alert out but wanted you all to have a heads up first.
And just to recap indoor space which is currently available until Friday (after that it is outdoors or nothing) :
Briggs – Soccer
White Rock – Little League
Cozy Lake – Lacrosse
Stanlick – Lacrosse (for tomorrow 4/16 only)
